The lowdown on Spotted Zebra and its skills-based workforce management platform to support companies with talent acquisition, talent development and internal mobility.

From the implementation of AI, to the transition to work-from-home or hybrid working, to the changing workforce demographic, things are changing fast, and that change is putting trillions of dollars worth of GDP at risk - around $11.5 trillion, in fact. In recent years, 3 in every 4 employers around the world have reported trouble finding the talent that they need to fill roles. This skills shortage is only getting worse, recently hitting a 16-year high. The solution is not only to help employees to train in new skills, but to better identify the skills that employees already have beyond those listed on their CVs and called for in their job description.

London-based startup Spotted Zebra has taken on the challenge of helping companies find their way in the skills-based economy. The idea is to put more value on the skills that employees have and can develop than on their job title or even their qualifications. It’s a process that recognises that people aren’t capped at the skill level they enter a job with, and are capable of learning and developing beyond that current skill level. And that everyone has skills and experience beyond just what’s in their CV and job description, and can contribute in a wider and more satisfying way.

Spotted Zebra is a skills-based workforce management platform that consists of a skills cloud, analytics dashboard, and a suite of apps that enable a skills-based approach to be scaled across organisations, allowing employees’ skills to be identified and validated so that those organisations can make fast, reliable decisions about hiring and reskilling. 

Recently, Spotted Zebra announced that they had raised $1.8 million in funding in a round led by Playfair Capital, with participation from Entrepreneur First. This funding will allow the startup to move forward with scaling their platform and adding to their list of clients, which already boasts FTSE100 companies.
